NAFCU's Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

My father turns 85 today.  I am lucky to have him as a father. He isn't perfect - no one is. But I can honestly tell you that for as long as I've known him - practically my whole life - he's always tried to do the right thing.  Sure - he's made mistakes - it isn't always clear what the right thing is. But having that intent behind your actions?

It's made all the difference.

Grandpa and Kate playing tennis

Oh, and he loves the Steelers. He also always tries to wear Steelers gear. And he usually succeeds in this endeavor. This is a picture of him hitting tennis with Kate.
